Ok.. before I actually try and research this much myself, let's see if GT really is the fountain of all knowledge. We have several different servers at work. Some are Windows 2000 and others are Windows 2003. We do not use Active Directory or a domain controller, etc. They are all in the same workgroup on the same LAN, but that's about it. We do not want to enable automatic updates on these, because we don't want an update to install & interfere with any of our applications without us knowing it. I know with Active Directory we can set the machines to get updates from just one server, and push them all out at once. Is that possible to do without AD & without a domain controller? It is becoming a hassle to manually update a dozen individual servers.
